Last month, I’ve written an article about website using custom WordPress themes that are really stand out and unique. One of the thing i love about them are the use of space and optimize of content presentation. It is entirely different from the ‘plain simple’ designs which we often see nowadays in website design. I know most people prefer the simple, less graphic, more white space and better speed for their themes just to get the better side with Search Engines and Google speed and ranking metric.

Today let us look at Magazine and Grid style WordPress Themes. Magazine style WordPress Theme offer lots of features than normal Blog style WordPress Theme. Most Magazine style themes allow users to display excerpts or headlines of their articles on the front page with medium or small thumbnails so they can have ‘one page show it all’ content wise website. This is suitable for WordPress site that have more than 50 or even 1000 posts in their archives. Other than that, Magazine style theme also allow users to featured some of their more important category and using them as Featured Category sections.
